    My mother in law got 6 buff Orpington chicks that are around 8-10 weeks old a couple of weeks ago.
    Some of them have a clear nose drainage, occasionally sneeze and I can hear a tiny noise when they breath.
    She said they are eating, drinking and very active and symptoms don't seem to be getting any worse.
    I have read about Coryza having a smell associated with it and I am not sure what that smell is like but these babies stink!
    If it's Coryza would they be getting worse instead of staying the same?
    Any advise I can give her would be great.
    They are very sweet chickens and like to jump up in her lap so she is pretty attached already.

    Thanks for the advise. She is alone for a few days and new to chickens so she doesn't feel like she will be able to do the injection.
